UNIQUE Wedding: Monica & Jorge at Sacred Heart Catholic Church & Tampa Yacht Club

I LOVE this couple! Monica & Jorge were such a complete joy to work with! Through the planning process, we not only built a great client / planner relationship, but also a friendship! They wanted to have a wedding that not only included their own cultural traditions, but also was eco-friendly. They weren't interested in your typical green and brown, daytime eco-wedding. They wanted something that was colorful and spectacular! Each of the Bridesmaids wore their own little black dress and carried colored bouquets that matched the wraps that the Bride purchased for them in Colombia. The dining room centerpieces consisted of collections of vintage plates & vases and an array of vegetables & flowers. When the guests moved outside to the tent for dancing, we gathered all of the florals and produce, and created "Monica & Jorge's Famer's Market!" The guests were given recycled bags to take what they wanted on their way out.

Monica & Jorge, I'm so excited to see what life has in store for your two! Be sure to keep us posted!

Just to add: flowers and fruits were in season, and the chalk boards were donated to a charity that brings supplies to Nicaragua (

Thanks, Staci. Your secret (maiden name) is safe with me. :)
